Veritas Storage Foundation from Symantec provides a complete solution for heterogeneous online storage management. Based on the Veritas Volume Manager from Symantec and Veritas File System from Symantec, it provides a standard set of integrated tools to centrally manage explosive data growth, maximize storage hardware investments, provide data protection, and adapt to changing business requirements. Unlike point solutions, Storage Foundation enables IT organizations to manage their storage infrastructure in a centralized consistent fashion. With advanced features such as centralized storage management, online configuration and administration, Dynamic Storage Tiering, Dynamic Multi-pathing, data migration, and local and remote replication, Storage Foundation enables organizations to reduce operational costs and capital expenditures across the data center.
Intended for enterprise environments, Storage Foundation Enterprise offers full functionality, including FlashSnap, storage checkpoints and Dynamic Storage Tiering. Veritas Storage Foundation for Windows provides easy-to-use online storage management specifically designed for mission-critical, enterprise Windows environments.
Increased storage utilization
It maximizes storage capacity across heterogeneous operating systems and storage hardware.
I/O path availability and performance
Efficiently spread I/O across multiple paths for maximum performance, path failure protection, and fast failover.
Dynamic storage tiering
It seamlessly and transparently migrates data among storage tiers - fiber channel, SATA, solid state, other - based on its business value.
Centralized storage management
Manage multiple hosts from a central interface to improve operational efficiencies across a heterogeneous infrastructure.
Seamless data migration
Free data from technology changes with simple server migrations across different operating systems.
Simplify the management and provisioning of storage, while increasing storage utilization, lowering costs and improving operational efficiencies.
Database storage management
Simplify manageability while achieving high availability and superior performance for DB2, Oracle, Sybase and MySQL databases.
Local and remote data protection
It protects data across any environment with point-in-time copies and data replication.
Multi-vendor hardware infrastructure
It reduces capital expenditures with broad support for heterogeneous operating systems and storage hardware.
Simpler, leaner and more resilient
Zero boot install and upgrade, rolling upgrades, smaller host footprint and keyless feature enablement.
It limits the amount of time disks need to be offline for maintenance by performing volume and file system resizing, domain reconfiguration, backup and off-host processing while the data remains online and available.
It instantly creates database and disk backups of files or file systems that require no additional disk space.
Automated performance tuning
It automatically tunes each write for optimal performance.
It automatically migrates data from failing disks to healthy disks.
It supports all levels of RAID for maximum availability and performance.
